A recent survey looking at the photo habits of the UK's residents has revealed how our gender can affect what subject appears in front of our lens. 

For women, it turns out that more often than not, it's duck pouts and other selfie poses that reign while men are foodies who also enjoy capturing photos of vehicles and sunrises / sunsets. The results also show that both sexes seem to enjoy documenting social gatherings and we're a nation of pet lovers with the number of men and women capturing pet portraits almost even.  

Here's the full list of results:

MiniSelfies / Self Portraits

  • Men - 20.7%
  • Women - 26.9%


  • Men - 15%
  • Women - 16.7%


  • Men - 10.4%
  • Women - 10.1%


  • Men - 5.3%
  • Women - 3.3%

Sunrise / Sunset

  • Men - 5.3%
  • Women - 2.6%


  • Men - 4%
  • Women - 2.3%


The survey was conducted by United Arts who analysed more than 100,000 photos taken from over 1,000,000 My-Picture canvases.

not true! that is, that women are way more narcissistic is an obvious trueism Smile - and I think, ratio is not only 26:20, but 99:1 Smile)
but that men like best to take photos of their cars is wrong: they'd love to take pics of nude girls - but alas! there are only a few willing to pose naked (without charging money) - hence the ersatz of car-photography.
